Christmas Tree Recycling in Fresno

Posted:

The holidays are almost over, but there is still a lot of work to get done. In case you're ready to toss out your Christmas tree, the city of Fresno wants you to follow some simple steps.

The Solid Waste Division says real Christmas trees should not go in the regular trash bin. Instead, residents should put the trees in the green recycling container.

Here are some guidelines on how to do it:

  • Remove all the ornaments, lights and tinsel
  • Remove the stand
  • Cut the tree into 3-foot portions

The recycled trees will be cut down even further and used as compost and mulch.

For more information, call the city of Fresno at (559) 621-1452 or click on this link Recycle Trees.
